The sea is beautiful but there was not much fish shadows. The wave to go here is high and the ship sways.

Me and my girlfriend snorkelled here and 2 other spots nearby where we saw turtles and sardine shoals. It only took up about 2 hours of our day but us was great. Seeing a turtle close up was worth the trip alone. Only downfall was...More

Really enjoyed this island, was very small and no shops or anything. So bring snacks and water cause you can’t get anything out there. Definitely recommend going though, very relaxing and boats go all the time so you can stay long or just a little...More

Pescador Island is truly a paradise for diving. The water is so crystal clear that makes you want to stay there forever. The colorful underwear world with beauuuutiful corals create out of this world feeling.

There really are two dives to be done on this little island-the west and the east. While the West boasts "the cathedral" which really should be "the chapel", the East would be my choice if you can only do one dive there. West-Nice big wall...More

We went there for several dives, enjoying a variety of sea life and corals. Our dive masters had a knack for spying hidden gems among the reef and coral.

Little dissapointed. Wall is nice, more better in shallow place. Not so many fish but this is probem I see too much. Easy boat trip to this place which is good. Dive it once time enough

The corals and fish at this dive site were amazing. I dove this site twice with Cebu Dive Centre (highly recommended shop).

One of my favourite snorkel place as I witnessed school of sardines glide gracefully. Also saw hawkbills turtle at Tonight point. I will definitely come back for a dive if I had a chance in the future. Mark my words, a must in Moalboal.

If you are unable to swim, I would advise you not to try to snorkel or dive at Pescador. It is 5 miles away from the mainland, so it is higher risk than doing something off the beach. But if you want to do it, there are... More

It's better to stay in the south if you want to see Cebu Island. From Cebu City you have to take a ride down to Moalboal. We rented a car for 2000 Pesos per day. We stayed at a resort in Moalboal (Bonita Oasis something) and... More
